Athlete Anderson Will Visit

<b>Corey Anderson</b>, the 6-1, 180-pound athlete from Lake Balboa (Calif.) Birmingham, had one of the best seasons for a wide receiver in the Los Angeles area...

After getting a taste of the City Section's Championship as a sophomore, Lake Balboa (Calif.) Birmingham receiver/safety Corey Anderson (6-1, 170) was hungry for one of his own as a senior.

"I got called up from JV at the end of that year," said Anderson of the 2002 City Champs led by future Bruin Dennis Keyes. "But man, winning it now feels even better than I expected."

Anderson helped lead Birmingham to its second title in three years this season, and this time it was worth even more. He said, "To win it as a senior, you couldn't ask for more than that."

The athletic Anderson had a strong senior year, with 56 receptions for over 1400 yards and 12 touchdowns. On defense, he tallied 8 interceptions.

Anderson frequented UCLA games this past season, and said the Bruins are one of the schools he is hearing from.

Anderson recently received his first offer, from UNLV.

"UNLV offered me, and I think Nevada is on the verge," Anderson said. "Utah and UCLA are the other two schools I'm really being recruited by. I am going to trip to UNLV and UCLA this weekend. If UCLA offers me, I'll probably commit." Anderson is being recruited by UCLA assistant Don Johnson.

Anderson has a 3.4 GPA and will take his SAT later.
